Product Description

Is it possible that major world events are affected by spirits—even if one doesn’t believe in them? Can it be that everything from decisions about peace and war to the food we eat and the gods we pray to may have roots in the disembodied voices whispering in the ears of popes and prophets, politicians and prime ministers, dictators and kings? It may seem incredible, but as J. H. Brennan reveals in this eye-opening new history, there is a wealth of evidence to suggest that such whisperings are not only possible, but that they have occurred again and again, subtly directing the course of human events.

In Whisperers, bestselling novelist and expert on the occult J. H. Brennan explores how the “spirit world”—whether we believe in it or not—has influenced our own since the dawn of civilization. Chronicling millennia of contact between the spirit world and our own, Whisperers presents an entirely new and different way to look at history.

Praise for Whisperers:

"From the hair-raising to the eyebrow-raising, this is a scintillating account of meetings with spirits throughout history. Hats off to J.H. Brennan!" —Mark Booth, author of The Secret History of the World

"Am authoritative new study of the influence of apparent spirit contact on the course of history from ancient time to the present time." —The Daily Beast

"Here is the history that you didn't learn about in the classroom. Whisperers is a challenging and through-provoking work." —Christopher McIntosh, Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Exeter
